Welcome to the Rural GP Association of Scotland (RGPAS)

Representing, progressing and collaborating for the educational and professional needs of rural GPs in Scotland.

“Our membership comprises rural GPs from across Scotland. We aim to keep our members informed, and facilitate useful dialogue through our ’email Chatline’.”

“Educational activity is concentrated into the Annual Conference, usually held in November. We also highlight relevant events to our members, and are also involved in informing others (including NHS Scotland) on CPD needs of our members.”

“Members of RGPAS have a common aim to maintain and develop high quality rural medical services. We are improving ways in which we can share good practice and great ideas.”

“We want to stimulate and enthuse medical students and trainees to consider rural practice. As well as our conference student scholarships, we also offer travel and elective scholarships for members and students.”
